Powertrax Locker Issue

I am in the process of installing a 1250-LR into my Chrysler 8.25 on my 2001 Cherokee. Im at the point where I have to put the cross pin back in and it doesnt seem there is space for it to slide back in. I pushed and pulled on the axle shafts numerous times while pushing against the Collars that go over the C- clips to see if they would seat better but still no luck. Is there something I am missing here? I attached a picture of the assembly in its current state to show you where Im having the issue with cross pin clearance. Everything has been done by the book so far and Im stuck on what to do from here

You would probably get more responses if you posted this in "Modified Tech". The member's forum doesn't see much traffic.

What gears are you installing? Once you start getting up there in the numerically higher gears you start getting into the need to grind some teeth for clearance.

Moved. OP what is it hitting? Ring gear or a shaft?

Re: Powertrax Locker Issue

Are the wheel bearings and seals brand new?, sometimes it’s tight with fresh wheel bearings.
In the instructions for the power trax, they should have you check the center gap clearance, was this in spec?

Re: Powertrax Locker Issue

1) No pic shows up

2) Are you SURE you have the spacers in the right way ? 1 way will move the c-clips closer to the center pin than the other does (and give you the same problem you describe)

Seems some cross posting is better than no posting.

Post em up every where.

I had to Sand two teeth to make room for pin to fit with 4.88s.
